    • 1st Lt., Co. G, 49th Kentucky Volunteer Infantry (USA) [http://home.southwind.net/~crowther/Dibrell/Civ.html]

      From http://www.philcrowther.com/Hayden/Pictures.htm:

      John Anthony Hayden was born 13 Jun 1834 in Wayne County and was the oldest son of James Madison Haden and Wilmuth Watson Dibrell. In 1845, his father died, leaving his mother destitute with 5 young children to raise. On 28 Aug 1858, he married Gemima Morgan, daughter of Griffen Morgan and Mary Shepherd. John and Gemima had 6 children: 5 daughters and 1 son.

      During the Civil War, he served as a 1st Lieutenant in Company G, 49th Kentucky Infantry. There is no evidence that he served in combat. Instead, he contracted dysentery and was forced to resign his commission for health reasons.

      He and Gemima lived on a modest farm at Young's Creek in Whitley County and he continued to suffer the effects of his illness for the rest of his life.
